We are soliciting submissions for a special issue in Feminist Teacher focusing on pedagogies employed by women of color while in graduate school. Often, we do not critically engage with the formative processes and experiences that shape our future teaching praxis. This issue focuses on how we learn from our successes and failures in the classroom including women of color’s creation of supportive mentoring and peer networks. We envision these essays serving as touchstone in the ongoing conversations on how women of color survive and thrive in the academy.
